April 13, 2017 - Holy Thursday Homily
Help one another. That is my message to you this evening. When you come forth to wash feet or have your feet washed by another...think of the pope four years ago as a 76 year old man kneeling on a hard surface floor washing the feet of young prisoners who represent people who are different from us yet at the same our equal before God.
April 14, 2017 - Good Friday Homily
On this Good Friday instead of asking why the crowd and the apostles acted the way they did we need to ask ourselves - why do I act the way that I do?
April 15 & 16, 2017 - Easter Vigil & Easter Sunday Homily
For Catholics, Easter is not just one day but fifty days - it is too important to miss! Are you willing to celebrate these next fifty days by reflecting on the Sunday gospel readings as an individual or with family & friends? Are you willing to read the gospel before you come to Mass? Are you willing to ask yourself what the reading means to you and how it can be applied to your family or your friendships? Are you willing to live as Easter people?
April 9, 2017 Palm Sunday Homily
As we enter the holiest of weeks: Are you a believer because everyone else that you care about is a believer? Have you made the Catholic faith your own? Would you remain Catholic even if your family and friends no longer practiced their faith?
April 2, 2017 Homily
Does your faith give you hope? Is Jesus the Way, the Truth and the Life for you?
March 26, 2017 Homily
The readings this weekend explain vividly our Lenten theme of "From Darkness to Light." In his letter to the Ephesians, St. Paul puts it this way: "You were once darkness but you are now light in the Lord." He is speaking to a community that were pagan before they became Christian. The light of their new faith in Jesus gives them a different perspective on how they now see the world around them. What is your perspective?
March 19, 2017 Homily
In the Gospel this weekend we encounter the Samaritan woman. This woman comes to the well looking for water to quench her thirst. Jesus knows that she has a thirst for more than just water and so he gets into a dialogue with her. "What are you thirsty for?" The scriptures today reveal that God is always reaching out to us, always seeking to deepen his relationship with us. Are you willing to place your trust in him? When we do, we move from darkness to light.

Our parish theme for this lenten season is "From Darkness To Light." God's call is always in that direction. How have you responded?
March 5, 2017 Homily
We are stewards of God's creation; we understand that life and all it offers is a gift from God to be used generously by sharing our time, talent and treasure with our parish and all those in need. Do you understand yourself as a steward? Do you understand life and all it offers as a gift? Do you walk more in the darkness or in light?
